something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

A secret British aviation project is being disrupted by a foreign power, until an effete but supremely confident military-intelligence agent, Charles Hammond (Ralph Richardson), is assigned the case.
What follows is a tense espionage thriller that refuses to take itself seriously.
Yet strangely, this odd mixture of screwball comedy and political-thriller works and everyone involved with this brisk comedy/thriller seems to be enjoying themselves immensely.

Subject: I thought the movie was too modest.
No nudity, no vile language, no blood.

Despite this, I found the play to be delightfully light and entertaining.

Subject: Richardson and Olivier together
Great movie, Olivier and Richardson are two of Britain's greatest. British stiff-upper-lip and comedy go together so well.

As for the reviewer who complained of immodesty, I don't think the Amish would find it too immodest. If the level of passion in this movie is too much for you I suggest you don't watch movies at all - for your own good, of course.

Can't recommend it, it has some immodesty.

Subject: Hilarious
Where has this rare gem been hiding for so long?
This stiff upper lip screwball comedy is par-excellence. Ralph Richardson is hilarious in his role of a bumbling idiotic yet intelligent detective. The plot of aircraft secrets from Britain being stolen by a foreign power(with a noticeable German accent so that the viewer has no doubts on the nationality) serves as a perfect vehicle to exploit the comedy script for great entertainment. Ralph Richardson's repeated excuses to his girlfriend(ex that is ) tickles the funny bone.
Valerie Hobson is great as the newspaper woman always looking for a scoop to fall out from her brothers mouth and Sir Olivier plays the typical British gentleman.
Great entertainment indeed and needs to be seen by more.

Great old movie, you can tell a lot of James Bond ideas came from this movie.

Subject: Pre James Bond?
Enjoyable espionage story, not too serious, well acted by leads and supporting actors, good dialogues. Some of the sci-fi-like toys and the way the planes use to disappear remind me of James Bond movies.

Worth watching. It isn't superb, but good enough.

Subject: Highly Recommended
Ralph Richardson, Laurence Olivier, and Valerie Hobson are great as the stars, and with a fine supporting cast provide a fun and engaging 79 minutes. It surprised me to find a British comedy of this kind came out the same year WWII started in Europe.

I downloaded the 700MB DivX file, which is really an AVI. The video is fine, but for a green tint in most of the movie. The audio is clean. Audio/Video sync varies slightly, but isn't that noticeable.
